I’ve loved Japan ever since I did Ironman Japan in 1994 and 1995 and had home-stays. So excited about going back. This will be my third TDA trip. I retired from a banking career in New York in 2016.

There are so many interesting places to travel to, and I can't think of any better way to travel through anywhere, than by bike. I enjoy the challenge it brings and I look forward to going to the more out of the way locations. I enjoy travel, and I love cycling so am looking forward to combining them both again on this trip. My first TDA trip was Madagascar in 2019 and I can’t wait to do another trip with TDA.

Australia

I am married and live between suburbia in Wollongong (near Sydney) but live mostly on a farm at Harden (in country New South Wales, Aust.). We are mostly retired (medical field) and enjoy trekking and travelling, plus 'my' riding. We have 8 'kids' and 13 grand-kids between us, to keep us busy. I thoroughly enjoyed the Shanghai-Xian section of 2012 Silk route and look forward to a longer commitment (Beijing -Almaty). Finished UB to Almaty in 2016.

A cyclist on and off for many years. I started when I was 14. I rode a section from Sudan to Ethiopia 2014 and Rute De Maya 2015. Now I am looking forward to the sections covering Tanzania to Namibia. I still work, why retire? I travel constantly but still manage to maintan some form of fitness.

I have realised cycling holidays let you see and experience so much more - and you can eat porridge every day and not feel guilty for all those carbs! Sign me up. I have cycled sections of Ruta Maya, Tour D'Afrique, and the last section of West Africa in 2018. Erin convinced me that we need to cycle again so we are meeting up to ride the Silk Route. Let's hope there is WIFI. I'm self employed so have to work outside of riding my bike. It's been done everywhere else so I am sure I'll be fine here too. Places I want to see before I die.. Iran, Mauritius and Alaska in no particular order. I guess this ticks off Iran!

I have been cycling all around the world solo or duo (Cuba, France, West Africa, Patagonia, Balkans, S-E Asia, etc..). First organized tour ever was North American Epic in 2019 (northern part and central America). Liked it so much, here I am super excited to bike the Trans Caucasus with you

"It's a cyclists utopia. These trips are about being on your bike and experiencing far off lands one pedal stroke at a time while creating lasting friendships through shared experiences and some hard work. Good Times!"

"You will be very proud of yourself for completing this difficult (mentally and physically) tour. The scenery is gorgeous, the cultures interesting, the weather and roads challenging. It is quite an adventure!"

"The Canada-based company is known for creating some of the most daring and dramatic long distance bike rides in the business. This one, which goes from Azerbaijan to Georgia and Turkey, is one of them."
